WEDNESDAY MORING IN POZNAN

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Onsdag 13 juni 08:12

We didn't leave the camp until noon despite Mom getting up before 5 am, she said she had so much to do...…haha.

We took a long early walk on the dock looking at all beautiful sailboats. Mom admired this wooden ship the most. 

     

 

This is a good way to live on a boat without getting seasick says Mom, but what about the afraid of hight issue?

 

 


The owner of this camp sure loves gardening, it was like walking in a botanical garden and many trees had labels with names and origins, so we ended up making more than one walk around it all. As we were leaving we saw 2 ladies on their knees planting more flowers, and we didn’t think they could make it any prettier.

 

   

 

we saw a big RV which Mom thought was an American because of the signs, but they only spoke German, anyway he had really cool hubcaps.

   

 


We have a new window box with a talking road map, Last years Alice has retired and now we have a lady named Linnea who tells Mom when it’s time to turn. Linnea is talking a lot more than Alice ever was, so Mom is getting a little irritated when Linnea tells her to slow down for a sharp curve or warns of a narrow road and tells her to mind her business. I bet she’ll apologize to her when she gets lost though.


We told Linnea we wanted to go to Poznan, which shouldn’t take more than2.5hours driving on a highway. As usual that bored Mom to sleep, so she went against Linnea and took off an exit and kind of winged it, and that immediately perked her interest. ..............………..whooopie, my old Mom is back to normal


We drove through small villages and a lot of farmland and forests. The road was pretty bumpy at times but so much more interesting according to Mom. We drove through miles of pine forests, Very tall trees that were planted in exact straight rows Some trees younger and also planted perfectly in line so they looked like a Korean army.


The supermarket has a ladybug as a logo so that’s easy to find, and as you all know that is Moms favourite kind of shopping. She finds it so exciting looking at all the different delicacies not having a clue what she’s buying, and the language is impossible to understand. Polish people do not speak English, German or Swedish, at least not in small villages. So far Mom has only learned to say Thank You………...Dziekuje?? it is pronounced jen-koo-yea………

 

 

 


An excellent woodcarver must be living in this town which was called Kwilcz,

Seems like every word and place in Polish includes the letters Z and C, often more than once which makes it impossible to pronounce 

 

 

 

When we finally arrived in Poznan Mom drove around the city many times trying to find a legal place to park for the night. The Polish language is impossible to understand but the picture of a tow truck picking up your car is international, so in the end, we drove to a campsite and paid14 Euro for a night.I’m glad we did it’s a gorgeous place with a security guard and the lady in the reception spoke great English.

 

For a while, Mom thought of staying here for the night but after a walk around she spotted the towtruck sign again.

This girl was jogging with her dogs lead strapped around her waist..............not a great idea because as soon as he saw me he wanted to stop and say hello, and pulled her down on the ground. Good thing she didn't get hurt and at first, the dog looked ashamed and sincerely apologised to her with lots of loving kisses.

 

   

 

 

Supper was new potatoes (with a dab of Hellman's)from Sweden and herring from Poland……………...Looked gross to me so I didn’t give that a second look, but Mom seemed to enjoy it……..

 

 

 


Pretty soon we'll be biking into Poznan, it's only 4 km so I'm sure Mom could handle that, hopefully, she will not get lost this time, like she usually does in bigger cities.

 

later alligator

Yesterday when we got back from the city we were both totally exhausted, Mom can't understand why I should be since I was riding in the carriage the entire time? Well, let me tell you even if I feel rather safe in my spot it's impossible to take naps...

At the moment we’re in a town called Wroclaw and if we had taken the high way we would have been here in 3 hours tops, but as usual Mom’s doing her thing and off into the boondocks we went. Who knew it was so difficult to get around in Po...
